't forget to add the many, many seen kwors, millions of seniors many medicare advantage plans who received letters telling them they are losing their doctor because of the obama care cuts to the medicare advantage plans dropping specialists that seriously ill patients depend on. >> i have a small business. i lost my plan. i had five options to look at. all five are worse than the option i had before. the most comparable one is a 48% increase. i called the insurance company to see what they had the to say. she said they have been getting calls left and right. she said, we can go into the bank website and try. of course i couldn't get through. that's another employee for me being taken away. multiply it by millions of companies. it's killing the economy. >> 93 million and they knew it in july of 2010. first of all, i know you. i know your daughter. if your daughter lied to you how much trouble is she in sp system a lot. but i won't say this is a lie. it's a new law being implemented. >> the president said if you like your plan you can keep your plan, period. they knew in july of 2010 that wa
big fight over social security and medicare. top republicans are saying repeatedly that they will be glad to end the sequester, the across-the-board federal cuts that took place earlier this year, if democrats agree to future cuts in social security and medicare. how do you both think this is going to play out? >> well, president obama's indicated he's been willing to make cuts in both social security and medicare. but i think he needs something more in taxes than the republicans are prepared to give. so my guess is that you won't see that. but it does have me very concerned. these are openly on the table. and you look at the condition of today's elderly, i think you're really hard-pressed to say that they have too much money. i mean, for 40% of people over age 65, their social security check is more than 90% of their income. and these are checks that average a little over $1,200 a month. so to say that these people are doing so well, we should be looking to cut back their benefits or have them pay more for medicare, that to my mind seems 180 degrees wrong track. >>
. that's how medicare and medicaid is paid for. isn't it fairer where at least half of the country might see higher premiums to pay for the other half? >> what's fair about that? everyone is priced out of them. they are only basically available to a handful of people. there's nothing fair about the way the cost structure is. not to -- and to add insult to injury, the care is not going to be there for you. >> and the fact is, we have been paying and subsidizing to pay for people who do not have health insurance for years. they go to emergency rooms, and we are stuck with a very high inefficient bill. it's time to level the playing field and reduce costs in that manner. >> but here's the problem. we'll wind up with more uninsured now as people get dumped from their plans. so we have not even solved the core problem that obama care was supposed to solve. >> that has to be the last word. all right. >>> sticker shock from obama care isn't just sticking it to folks shopping for health care. it could be the grinch that killed the entire holiday shopping season. neil's gang trying to rescue chri

money needs an ally. lou: a new government watchdog report shows the centers for medicare and medicaid services wrongly paid out $20 million to health care organizations on behalf of dead people. they are the agency in charge of implementing obamacare. the government waste and abuse does not end there. a separate report finds employees at the department of homeland security that have used overtime pay policies that have cost taxpayers $8.7 million per year in the dh budget this year is $60.8 billion. the reports show college students nationwide are experiencing obamacare sticker shock. community colleges in new jersey, once among the hundreds of educational institutions nationwide offered cheap health insurance to their students would have had to drop the practice because obamacare prohibits the sale of those insurance policies now. more evidence of the health care law is potentially going to disrupt the budget and medicaid itself and an overwhelming majority of people applying for an expansion of medicaid as opposed to applying in the mber of states. looking at the startling numbers,

republican budget has significant cuts to medicare benefits -- those are the very benefits that provide economic security to millions of middle- class families and has zero dollars of revenues that could be used to invest and the essential pillars of economic growth like education, workforce readiness, science, research and innovation. i believe there are significant savings that can be achieved in our health care system without compromising the quality of care, and in fact, improving the quality of care. and without slashing benefits that seniors have worked so hard for and earned. former secretary-treasurer he paul o'neill has estimated we can save $1 trillion per year without affecting health care outcomes by in acting smart, targeted health care delivery reforms. the institute of medicine estimated the number could be 750 billion dollars. no matter what the exact figure or proposal, these are impressive savings that would strengthen the nation's health- care system without shifting cost and burdens to seniors and states. these have the added benefit of improving quality, -- quality
